You want URLs????

It amazes me that you've been unaware of this because it seems to me that 1/2 the books you've got are hi-jacked.

Mackeeper, "Canadian Pharmacy" and their ilk are probably just the tip of the iceberg. These idiots are uploading dozens of titles a day solely to use you for THEIR advertising and they have HUNDREDS of them by now.

Perhaps they believe you're supplying them with some legitimacy by appearing to endorse them? Who knows?

Anyway, here's just a SMALL sampling:

There are so many pages of them, in fact, that it's probably been going on for months, even years. Hell, your entire listing needs checking. I recommend you start at page one:

http://archive.org/search.php?query=%28collection%3Aopensource%20AND%20mediatype%3Atexts%20AND%20%28language%3Aeng%20OR%20language%3AEnglish%29%29%20AND%20-mediatype%3Acollection&;sort=-publicdate

and simply get busy scrolling and deleting.

Thank you satinette2 and Jeff Kaplan, this confirms my suspicion that something is not right. I would prefer if this kind of stuff is weeded out. I note also that many of these works are still under copyright. It would be a sad development if archive.org becomes another MegaUpload-type of site.

A more helpful way to search for these items would be simply to look for
creator:(Google) AND collection: opensource

Whoever uploaded these even "borrowed" the images of the covers of the books from amazon.com, as in this example:
